Clinical Care and Innovation
The Centre integrates internal departments at SickKids, including radiology, surgery, anaesthesia and paediatrics, to continually develop new and innovative clinical procedures that will improve outcomes for our patients. We provide an opportunity for collaborative specialized care to inform and integrate patient care using best practice and evidence based medicine.
Our multidisciplinary team is celebrating a North American first in paediatric health care: SickKids doctors destroy bone tumour using incisionless surgery. Our patient, Jack Campanile, is the first child in North America to undergo a breakthrough procedure using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), a non-invasive treatment, to destroy a bone tumour in his leg without piercing the skin. Watch Jack's story here.
